Why an African Safari is the perfect holiday for Social Distancing

A safari is the pinnacle of a bucket-list trip, whether it is seeing the Great Wildebeest Migration, spotting the Big Five or gorilla trekking through Rwanda or Uganda’s national parks. It is a once in a lifetime experience that we think should be booked sooner rather than later!

With strict protective measures in place worldwide, a safari is actually the most perfect holiday if you are worried about social distancing when travelling. The demand for safaris in 2021 is increasing rapidly, so if you are thinking about it, we recommend planning it and booking it soon.

Firstly, your safari will be in a remote location far from crowds with just striking nature all around as your backdrop! There are so many stunning boutique and exclusive lodges and camps to choose from to give you a rustic experience. These range from budget to luxurious options, with some having incredible pools with views to relax in after an exhilarating game drive. If you love wellness and spas you’ll be pleased to know that you can find some wonderful state of the art spa facilities in certain camps.

Secondly, you will be enjoying game drives in your own private vehicle with just the driver guide as company and a maximum of 4 people per car. A fantastic intimate experience! We recommend going on an early morning game drive and one in the evening so that you can see wildlife at their peak.

Thirdly, the dining experiences will be more personal and special. Imagine having a Champagne breakfast in the midst of the African Bush, a lunch by a pool with a view of zebras grazing nearby or a romantic dinner under a star-lit sky with candles for extra ambience! Sounds amazing right?
